Allison Kaplan Sommer, Don Futterman, and Noah Efron discuss three topics of incomparable importance and end with an anecdote about something in Israel that made them smile this week.

You Don’t Have to Be Religious to Be Religious, but It Helps
Can Israel’s religious right be led by a very secular, very feminist woman?

Eilat: Hot, Fraught & Overwrought
What, if anything, ought to be done about the woes of southern resort city Eilat?

Je m’accuse
A week after we buried another Ethiopian kid killed by a police officer, the eleventh in two decades, what accounts for our omnipresent racism? As Tolstoy never said, “Every racist society is racist in its own way.” What is our way of being racist?

Ehud Barak’s Perhaps Remunerative Relationship with Billionaire Sexual Predator Jeffrey Epstein
For our most extremely generous Patreon supporters, we discuss in our extra-special, special extra segment the brief but vicious twitter war between Prime Minister Netanyahu and former Prime Minister Ehud Barak over Barak’s perhaps remunerative relationship with billionaire sexual predator Jeffrey Epstein. Should consorting with mega-rich scumbags be an election issue for the leader of the new Democratic Israel party?

All this and the soulful folk (or is it folky soul) of TamaRadah!

  • Ai Sham (אי שם)
  • Abba AyYahoi (אבבה איהוי)
